I know I have mentioned how hot it has been here, but it’s been crazy! My guess is that it is in the mid 80’s and I heard 90’s are on the way. So I am forewarning you, I will be posting a lot of no bake recipes and grilled ones. The house is warm inside and turning on the oven, just makes it 10 times worse! Ugh. So speaking of the grill, today’s recipe is a Grilled Top Sirloin, topped with a sweet and spicy strawberry salsa.
Since my Husband has been on a beef kick lately, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and make a tender top sirloin for dinner on Sunday night. When I was picking out my steak, my Husband was like your eating steak? I like steak, I just don’t eat a lot of it because of calories. Yah, yah, I know calories! But top sirloin is only 160 calories for 4 oz, which is pretty good for steak. But one thing about sirloin, it can be a little tough and chewy.
But my sirloin didn’t turn out that way. Mine was very tender and very easy to cut. I thought I would try out the yogurt marinade that I mentioned yesterday, and low and behold it made my steak tender. I let the steak marinate for about 3 hours. I added a pinch of Worcestershire sauce, garlic and balsamic vinegar to the yogurt. It also added a nice flavor to the steak to.
Since I have a ton of strawberries, I thought a nice strawberry salsa would go great over top of the steak for some additional flavor. The salsa is made of sweet strawberries, cilantro, onions and jalapeno. Yum!! The salsa would also be good on top of bread or dipping pita chips into it. I am loving the salsa!! You mix my favorite fruit and vegetable together and I am all over it. Hope you’re not going to get sick of strawberry recipes, I will probably post a billion of them before the end of summer.

I wanted to let you know I haven’t updated my recipe page in over two-weeks. It seems it won’t hold any more pictures, so I need take the photos out. I started to work on it, but then Google Chrome shut down and I lost all of my work. I was irritated so I gave up. I contacted a designer to see if they can help with my recipe page, since I don’t know what to do with it. I haven’t heard anything back yet. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them. I just want a pretty recipe page, and it seems a lot harder to do then you would think!
It’s about that time! Need to make lunch and get ready for bed.
Have a great day and the weekend is almost here! Woohoo!!
